You’ll no longer need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play Rocket League online when the game goes free-to-play imminently. While you need an active membership to play premium franchises like Call of Duty and FIFA online, the platform holder allows free-to-play titles such as Fortnite to be enjoyed at no additional cost. And that will remain true when Pysonix’s vehicular soccer sensation ditches its price tag.
An update will deploy mid-September, and the switch to free-to-play will occur thereafter. Don’t think you’ll be short-changed if you’ve already paid for the game, though: if you’ve ever played a match of Rocket League before, you’ll be awarded Legacy status, and given a bunch of DLC for your troubles. You can find out more about that through here.
Someone organise a push square tournament please
It's free for switch at that point also. Just the Xbox that will have to pay to play a free to play game. Not sure how they're still getting away with charging to participate in free to play games
What a weird evolution : then free with PS+, now playable without PS+ and soon completely free to play!
Wow psyonix actually convinced sony to drop the ps+ requirement from a game! That's huge! l know F2P games don't require plus but games that transition from paid to free have still needed ps+ for some reason. This is a positive move by sony, I just wonder why Bungie couldn't convince sony to drop ps+ paywalls in destiny 2 when that went free to play
such a fun little game too!
BuT PlAyStAtISiOn Is AnTi-CoNsUmEr !!
It's vehicular football
One down,plenty more to go.Sony please remove psplus requirement ,from fighting games,and also for battlefield.
As a non-Plus user, I had no idea that some games were able to be played online without it. I even thought Fortnite required it. Are there other games that don't require one??
@NeoTokyo404 They sometimes do periods where you don't need it for certain games, like Bloodborne and Dark Souls. Other than that, I think it's just F2P stuff and FFXIV - but that of course needs a sub with Square Enix.
@gingerfrog wont be long until all online games will be free to play for Xbox.
I recently started playing again after a 5 year break! It's still a lot of fun and I'm still hilariously inept!
So many new modes and modifiers it's almost overwhelming! Helps that a lot of new trophies keep popping though.
Really where did you read that? Seams unlikely to me
